Groton Chiropractic Care for Spine and Related Musculoskeletal Pain

Pain makes us a bit self-centered instead of life-centered which is perfectly logical and logically universal. People globally experience pain, back pain, neck pain, musculoskeletal pain, much of which is spine-centered. Luckily, Groton chiropractic care is locally available to help manage as well as relieve spine-related pain.


Data from a worldwide study that followed spine pain (neck pain and low back pain) patients from 1990 to 2019 found that the “years lived with disabilities,” incidence, and prevalence of both spine issues rose significantly. Globally, neck pain and low back pain were observed to burden public health significantly, particularly as people age, being most problematic in middle and older aged folks. Data also pointed out that these two conditions were more frequent in women and middle-aged groups and more common in higher socioeconomic indexed countries. (1) Beyond low back pain, neck pain, rheumatoid arthritis, or osteoarthritis, the same Global Burden of Disease Study 2019 conveyed that “other musculoskeletal disorders” rose by 123.4% from 221 million to 494 million people from 1990 to 2019. With over 150 different conditions impacting bones, joints, muscles, ligaments, tendons, and the spine under the umbrella of “other musculoskeletal disorders,” health loss including death and disability due to musculoskeletal disorders is estimated to keep growing. From 2020 to 2050, it is estimated to increase by 115% to 1060 million cases. More women are affected by 47.4% than men. The prevalence of these disorders peaked between 65 and 69 years of age for both men and women.

Studies like these inspire us to keep up with spine research to assist you, our Groton chiropractic patient, best.


Back pain and neck pain are definitely two of our most common painful spinal conditions at Shoreline Medical Services/ Hutter Chiropractic Office…and standing is a daily requisite! Everyone’s spine is a bit different. How we each stand is a bit different…and that matters! A new study found that greater variations in lumbar lordosis (spinal curvature) like upright standing posture in a little more extension or more noticeable curvature like kyphosis may well impact musculoskeletal response as far as spinal loading and trunk muscle force. (3) We encourage thinking about good posture which can positively influence experiencinggood posture which includes standing up straight.


And sitting is another activity of daily living that we all do often without any thought (until pain makes us think about it constantly!). In a recent study, researchers wrote that unsupported sitting intensified intradiscal pressure by about 30% in comparison to upright standing. Intradiscal pressures were greater for sitting than standing when back angles were less than 20 degrees and higher for standing than sitting when the angles were greater than 20°. Knowing these types of spinal responses are vital in the world of occupational health where lumbar musculoskeletal disorders are a big concern.
